Simple question I hope…
What's the recommendation on the vpopmail side on integrating Dovecot's LDA for
I've seen various suggestions, including just calling it from the user's .qmail
file. In that particular case, it's not at all clear to me how other tools
that would touch that file (like qmailadmin) would be taught to not alter the
call to dovecot_lda. I imagine it would get munged everytime a user went to
setup a vacation message or forward.
Also I'm in the midst of upgrading from 5.4.10 to 5.4.33. I see that there's
new support to have vdelivermail handle the call to spamc for tagging, and also
support to have maildrop handle the filtering. A few questions regarding this
setup if vpopmail is configured to use spamc and maildrop:
* Is maildrop always doing the final delivery?
* What's the message flow when a .qmail file is encountered that has a forward?
* What's the message flow when a .qmail file is encountered that's piping to
maildrop (we have a ton of these on the old system, I assume I'd have to find
and nuke all of them)?
* Does this limit qmailadmin's abilities at all?
* If using valias, do we filter a message before forwarding offsite?
Hoping the list is still alive, didn't even realize I'm still subscribed here!
I think that a possibile solutions could be a configuration where
vpopmail is configured to call maildrop and maildrop "sent" the messagge
to an LMTP server (Postfix) that use dovecot LDA to delivery the email
in the Maildir. LMTP is fast and can also be used with Dovecot Director,
Director is needed when you have a shared storage and more than one
From the qmail/vpopmail point of view this configuration will be
From the maildrop point of view is necessary find the rigth "script"
(email -> pipe to LMTP) and insert in /etc/maildroprc.
Could be an idea?
